I know I've posted a bit recently, but I'm planning the next few batches. Here's what i have for a basic 5 gallon American Wheat: 3# Pilsner DME 3# wheat DME 6oz red wheat malt .5oz magnum @60 .5oz Hallertau @40 .25oz Citra @20 Any thoughts or input is greatly appreciated as always!
I was in my B&M and picked up a can of Briess CBW Bavarian Wheat UME. My wife likes Weizens so I figured "why not?" I won't get to this one for about a month and a half, but I was doing some research and tossing around some ideas and below is what I came up with. I'll steep the grains for 30 minutes, sparge and drain, add the UME, bring up to a boil, add the Tettnanger and boil for 20, then add the Hallertauer at flameout. I plan on using Safbrew WB-06 yeast. When I do this one it'll be my first non-Mr. Beer attempt, so any feedback from those familiar with Briess products would be appreciated.
